Messi named as La Liga’s best player for 2017/18

Barcelona’s final LaLiga match of the season against Real Sociedad is a celebration of the team’s achievements, and Lionel Messi was named as the competition’s best player before kick-off.

The Argentine has enjoyed a quite wonderful season in which he has scored the most goals, whilst often carrying his team to victories in certain matches.

Prior to kick-off against the Basque club, the La Masia graduate was presented with the award by his former teammate, Xavi Hernandez.

Fans at the Camp Nou applauded and praised their hero, although there were also brief presentations made to both Andres Iniesta and Xabi Prieto, legends of Spanish football who are making their final appearances in LaLiga.
